Keyhole Unbirthday Card

Today I have a keyhole card that opens up to reveal an “unbirthday” scene using the Alice stamp, Tea Party stamp, and Queen of Hearts stamp sets.

I had a Silhouette cut file that cut a keyhole in the front of the A2 card base as well as a keyhole outline.  I embossed a woodgrain A2 panel and then cut a keyhole into it as well. I put a piece of vellum behind the keyhole and thought that it would be fun to have it peek through to see the “unbirthday” party.  I stamped and heat embossed “A Very Merry Unbirthday to You” out of view of the keyhole.

Fitting all the characters I wanted provided a bit of difficulty and I didn’t like the way the peek looked, so I decided to add another white cardstock panel behind the vellum so the scene behind the keyhole wouldn’t show though.

I die cut all the images from the three stamp sets listed above and copic colored them. I  inked blended a bit of a background with distress oxide wilted violet ink.  I then adhered everything in place and finished with a sentiment from the Alice stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by!
